The Grand Tasting and Beaujolais Nouveau; wine in the spotlight this November
Published on 5 November 2019 in Events
With its chilliness, rain, short days and the ambiance of the festive season still a little way off, the month of November is not usually the most enjoyable of the year. But don’t despair; your Platine Hotel team offers you some good tips to make your stay in Paris a convivial gourmet delight...
The Grand Tasting; the leading rendezvous for wine lovers
If you’re a wine buff, November 29th and 30th are the dates to remember. During these two days, the Carrousel du Louvre hosts the new edition of the Grand Tasting, the wine fair organized by the oenologists of the Bettane + Desseauve guide. In addition to discovering original wines, you’ll be able to take part in the masterclasses and workshops dealing with tasting as well as food and wine pairings. Enthusiasts can meet specialists and enrich both their knowledge and their cellar, but neophytes are also made welcome and are quickly initiated into the wonderful world of wine.
The essential Beaujolais Nouveau
Every third Thursday of November - this year it’s on the 21st - the Beaujolais Nouveau is released for sale. This typically French celebration, which has become a real institution, also gives you the opportunity to celebrate a certain art de vivre and a great deal of conviviality. Your Platine Hotel team will be happy to advise you on the best wine bars in the area for tasting this nectar and enjoying its flavours of banana, red fruits or exotic fruits. You may also want to celebrate in one of the restaurants offering a special menu of food and wine pairings designed to bring out the best in the 2019 vintage.
With the Grand Tasting and Beaujolais Nouveau, your November break in Paris will be a wine enthusiast’s dream. Discover our recommendations for making the most of these events when you stay at the Platine Hotel!
